    Rab Noakes & Jill Jackson

    Rab Noakes is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music in Scotland and beyond. Joining forces with lifelong friend and acclaimed Americana singer songwriter Jill Jackson, they will travel together across the UK, creating an undeniable evening of enchanting, stripped back and captivating music. Their performance is consistently brilliant, and is equally emotive and entertaining.

    Although a generation apart, they have worked and sung together for over 20 years. Expect a rich collection of songs, self-penned alongside innovative interpretations. Each of them is an enthusiastic collaborator as well as an accomplished soloist.

    The combination of their voices, their wit and their obvious and infectious love of singing, make a sparkling combination with a great sound. They demonstrate the value of how different experiences can make a whole that’s more than the sum of the parts.

     

    Set in the unique environs of the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, this should not be missed.

    Spirit Of Slim Chance

    In the summer of 1974 Ronnie Lane and the band Slim Chance toured Britain with clowns, fire eaters, caravans, and a handful of great songs (not to mention Viv Stanshall as the ringmaster). It was called THE PASSING SHOW. The venue was a circus tent. The idea was to turn up practically unannounced and have a great time.

    What happened next has gone into Rock & Roll history. Drew McCulloch was in Slim Chance for the duration.

    Since then Drew has recorded 3 solo albums and worked with artists as diverse as Cliff Richard, Jim Davidson Go West and Gary Numan. Enjoy an evening of Ronnie Lane and Gallagher & Lyle classics, and original songs from Drew's amazingly talented Spirit of Slim Chance band.

    JJ Gilmour

    Jinky is Scotland's greatest musical secret. One of the funniest men you could have the pleasure to be in the same room as, he's toured with everyone from Chrissie Hynd to Steven Seagal. Recently, he's been performing as one half of the critically-acclaimed Caezar. On his own though, Jinky is equally as superb. His stories will you have crying tears of laughter. His songs will break your heart.

    There's no-one quite like Jinky. No-one. He's best experienced in the live setting, and in the unique surroundings of Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, this has all the makings of a cracker.

    Counselled Out - The Final Gig!

    A right Christmas cracker and no mistake. This will be Counselled Out's farewell show. They'll bow out on a high, re-playing a venue they once made their own. If it's the soul hits of yesteryear played as they sounded back in the day, Counselled Out is the band for you.
